Smile Everything works now

Moral of the story is that if you need a 30A to 50A adapter, don't go to Home Depot and buy the first adapter with the ends that you need. I bought a Power Grip dogbone and everything works fine. Note: the hot legs on the 50A plug are jumped together, so you get 110 on each leg.
Thanks for all your help.

Yup, way better than chaining multiple adapters together. This is the one I use (same idea, slightly more space efficient):

I got this one a couple of months ago, way better than using 2 adapters with the 25' 50A cable.

The microwave works, I think the frig switched to elec. and the GFCI works in the bathroom, but none of the other 110 outlets work. Noticed this because the TVís donít work. Checked the breakers. I saw a post about ďlosingĒ one leg of the 50amp. Is it possible that I lost a leg of the 50amp because of the multiple dogbones? If so, is this to be expected, or is something not wired correctly?


I had a similar issue when I wired a 50 amp plug to my 30 amp cord. I ended up jumping the two hot legs together in the 50 amp plug. The house circuits are split and using both legs of the 50 amp. The 30 amp to 50 might not be wired correctly.

Before I jumped both hot sides in the 50 together only my bedroom AC would come on. *** Note *** donít run both AC units at once on a 30 amp, it will trip!

I built the 30 amp to 50 so my propane generator can run either AC unit if needed...
